Crysis 3 confirmed, box art leaked, full details coming April 16

By on

Considering the franchise's popularity, there wasn't really any doubt about another Crysis game being in the works, but the upcoming entry has been confirmed after a series of leaks. EA jumped the gun today, briefly posting Crysis 3 on Origin. The listing was swiftly retracted, but not before Webgoers could grab a screenshot (below). Although Origin pulled the entry, remnants of the download page are still indexed on Google.

Since that blunder, NeoGAF readers have discovered high-resolution box art and a teaser indicating that Crysis 3 will be featured in an upcoming issue of Game Reactor. If you haven't caught on yet, there are few official details, but the box art depicts a Crysis soldier donning a nanosuit and a lethal compound bow. The background reveals an urban setting, suggesting that the game won't return to the jungle -- or at least not entirely.

Based on the premature listings, Crysis 3 will ship on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 for $49.99 -- $10 cheaper than Crysis 2's launch rate. A pricier Limited Edition is expected, but there's no word on what it'll have. In a statement to The Verge, EA said "the best kept secret in shooters just can't be contained," though the company won't cough up more details until April 16 -- presumably coinciding with Game Reactor's publishing schedule.
